Addicted to Knitting

Archive for March 13th, 2007

I am still working away at various projects here. I did all finish Dawn’s Very Cropped hoodie but I dont count it done till its on its way to Denver. Some of my stitches were very wonky and uneven!
I followed instructions in Stitch-n-Bitch and I believe I have them fixed.
Here are my swatches. the one on the right is Lambs Pride Bulky in Highland Gray
the middle one is patons SWS in Denim color way and it felted about 5 minutes before the other two so I cannot do as planned….gray soles with blue top
The one on the left plymouth Galway #702.
I have the galway in a brown so I can do brown tops with gray soles. This is a gift for my sil who doesn’t wear knitted items. She will wear these. The pattern calls for worsted using double strands but since I got gauge I think I can use the bulky in single strands.
OH I have to show you my gift. Yesterday was not my birthday or anything and I got gifts. My best friend sent me an Easter dress that is gorgeous and a wonderful crocheted scarf with yarn to match so I can make myself a hat. That was wonderful but then my husband gave me my late Christmas gift……check this out! The picture is not that great but the tools are. I love gardening especially flowers and this set is virtually indestructible. The snow is all gone and we are cleaning up the yard! I have spring fever.
